HI to all newsgroup users.

This is Anuj from India, I am new in this zone.

I am having some problem while removing active directory( in my windows2003

Can anyone help me?

Waiting for any quick response.

Hi Anuj,

I have had similar problem before and, if I remember well, I tried
restarting the server and ensured that it wasnt being accessed by the other
controllers in the forest.

Then I used the dcpromo /forceremoval
which gracefully demoted the server afterwards.

You should try and use the /forceremoval

You could also check the internet link below:

Hope this is helpful.
